1911 Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle. MS-64+ (PCGS). The 1911 double eagle is readily available through MS-63, and near-Gems can be located with a bit of patience and searching. It becomes very scarce as a Gem and rare any finer. Soft yellow-gold patination resides on the bright, lustrous surfaces of this MS-64+ example and a precise strike emboldens the design motifs. A single milling mark under the olive branch precludes Gem status. Nevertheless, this coin generates exceptional eye appeal.
